I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.

It comes back

See the beauty in the world around you. It will awaken and revive the very real beauty within yourself. Admire and appreciate the discipline and focus of others. You will become more focused and disciplined yourself.

Everything to which you pay heed in the world that surrounds you, resonates within yourself. If you envy and resent others for their success, that negativity reflects back on yourself. Instead, recognize and respect the achievements of others. Then their success will be a part of you, and you a part of it.

You cannot escape the consequences of a negative thought, regardless of to whom that thought is directed. Though you may be perfectly justified in being negative, look for the positive anyway. You cannot give without getting, so give the best that you have.

— Ralph Marston
